The tales in the book (and also those in The Second Jungle Book which followed in 1895, and which includes five further stories about Mowgli) are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons.
Dont waste your time
By A picky reader
I guess it was a nice book back in last century, but it is absolutely horrible now.
TBH, I dont think it was about the law of jungle, rather it's law of human. I’m not sure if someone feels the same, but the anthropocentrism make me sick so I swear I’ll never open this book again. I stopped at page 100 and just can’t keep reading it.
Just think about it, by what right does a 10-year-old human child have the power to scare off all other creatures through a stare in the eye?

It is a very nice book to read but it has got three problems, one is that it has to many pages and that it has no pictures and that it isn't a free audiobook.
This book is very good I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and my family this book tells you what the story line with there tweaks I gave this a 4 star . To get the book up to a 5 star maybe he opening be interesting as it just says the charatars
By Daniel Abbott
It was an old classic but now it's just absolutely rubbish
If you haven't read this book then please find time to do so. It's amazing to read Kipling's observations of human and animal behaviour especially during that era . It evokes the Far East and the lifestyle of those both native and foreign. Remarkable observation and narration. I knew of Jungle book and knew some of the characters and promised myself I would read it all one day. Make yourself the same promise...and keep it.
Rubbish book wast of time 😠
this was bad becaue you had to read.....
I just love it and it is a great way to learn about the scouts
